    Glycemic Index and it's limitations

    According to this link

    http://www.mendosa.com/gilists.htm

    Oatmeal is a 70 whereas there are many items which are equal or lower such as

    sponge cake 66
    banana cake with sugar 67
    white spaghetti 59
    instant noodles 67
    jams and marmalades 70
    mars bar 63

    Aside from the fact that most of these have no nutritional value, are they REALLY equally good or better sources of carbs in terms of preventing fat storage?

    Glycemic Index is a measure of the amount of Insulin 1 hour after ingestion.

    Perhaps it is possible that some of these foods have resulted in an insulin peak that has come and subsided in less than an hour?
